The Experience


Chateau Eza

Of all the hotels on the Cote d’Azur, Château Eza is the most stunning, with a Michelin-starred restaurant, tucked away in one of the most enchanting locations on the Côte d’ Azur.

Chateau Eza, the former residence of Prince Wilhem of Sweden, clings to the side of the ancient rock walls of Eze, a thousand-year-old medieval village more than 1,300 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. It is a castle of stone on a narrow cobblestone street, too small for modern day automobiles.

Each of the 12 luxurious guest rooms and suites is uniquely designed in the tradition of the castle, can be reached by walking under stone passageways, past cave-like shops and restaurants, and via ancient stone steps and walkways which lead to the individual doorways of the chambers and suites.  

All guest rooms have been newly decorated with modern comforts such as cable television (CNN), DVD players, touch-tone telephones, and private bathrooms including hairdryers.  private Jacuzzis, charming fireplaces, private balconies and breathtaking views are available.

A simple complimentary breakfast or a gourmet dining experience can be yours at the award-winning, Michelin-starred Chateau Eza restaurant – selected as the second most romantic restaurant in the world by Barbara Brass’s “Romantic Hideaways” survey.  The indoor glass edged dining room or outdoor terraces atop the cliff offers you a breathtaking view of the sea by day, or a magical sunset with athousand lights along the spectacular Riviera coastline each night.

Upon your arrival, look for our “Relais” which houses two Donkeys at the bottom of the village, where our valet will park your car and show you the way to our hotel reception. Here you will be greeted by our staff who were recognized by the readers of Travel + Leisure in  2012’s World’s Best Service awards.

Pretty as a postcard, Château Eza clings to the side of Eze’s ancient rock walls more than 1,300 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. Such a dramatic setting promises a remarkable experience, and this is one hideaway that definitely won’t disappoint. With just 12 guestrooms — most with fireplaces and private balconies, and all with modern amenities such as DVD players — there’s an enchanting, intimate atmosphere. The surrounding cobblestone streets don’t allow for automobile traffic, so quiet prevails. Dining is a regal experience; spend an evening in the elegant glassed-in dining room.

Take a seat on one of the terraces overlooking the Côte d’Azur and linger over the degustation menu in the Michelin-star restaurant.Distance from Nice Airport (NCE): 11 mi/18 km Guests Receive:
